Robin B. Zeiger PhD

Clinical Psychologist, Expressive Arts Therapist

ABOUT

I am a clinical psychologist and a Jungian who has been in practice since 1985, working with adults and children, as well in training and supervision. The longer I am in practice the more humble I become, recognizing I am an escort to my patients on a very personal journey of individuation. Carl Jung brought to the world a deep respect for the Soul to grow and heal itself given the right “soil.” My approach is to partner with my patients to create a safe “temenos” (sacred place of therapy) for the work of healing and growth to occur. I have worked with a breadth and depth of problems including depression, anxiety, abuse, ADHD, trauma, life issues, and spirituality. I also served as a pre-doctoral internship director for JFS Collaborative, a training consortium associated with Jewish Family Services of Richmond. In my second half of life I chose to train as a Jungian analyst and am in my 4th year as a Jungian candidate. I have also pursued training for the International Sandplay Association. I enjoy working with patients using dreams, creativity, and other symbolic means of depth work. I attempt to bring optimism, vision, and humility to the process and take seriously each person who enters treatment with me. Therapy is about finding the right fit or “shidduch” between patient and therapist. Thus, I am prepared to offer a free consultation to consumers from GetHelpIsrael.

Simmering Soup: On the Importance of Asking Questions

March 30, 2017

Sometimes the question sits on the back burner like low-simmering stew that has all but been forgotten. An innocent question may ignite a fire in a chilly room and we are off in a new direction. Or sometimes it buzzes around like a nasty mosquito.

Chewbacca Visits: The Power of a Dream

September 4, 2016

Dreams bring images and messages from the depths of our soul. It is our psyche’s way of compensating for our conscious life, which is only one-half of our life-story. Our dream life brings a richness and ebb and flow to our daily existence. Likewise when we are in touch with our unconscious, there is a flow to our daily existence much like the ebb and flow of the waves of the sea. Our unconscious helps bring us light and creativity and vitality.
